Referencing is an essential academic skill. You need to reference in order to:
show evidence of your research
support your arguments and analysis
allow readers to identify and locate the sources you’ve used
acknowledge the work and ideas of others
If you do not reference properly you will lose marks and risk plagiarising the work of others.
Plagiarism is the act of passing off someone else’s work as your own and is a form of cheating. NOTE: You need to acknowledge others’ work, even if you are paraphrasing or putting their work or ideas into your own words.
